- Preservation of tape to TZX format
- High-res scan of inlay
- Photo of cassette
- Register in ZXDB / Upload to spectrumcomputing.co.uk (SC) (for long term preservation).
- Posting with info in this thread (with link to SC and maybe own site zxinfo.dk)
The intention with this thread, is to keep it simple for people to find the programs (yes, I know only a handful or two programs exists) - of course any help is appreciated.
The tapes for now that will have full preservation in the near future (if the tape loads)
- Squezee Play (SBS)
- Monkey Kong (SBS)
- Invader (SBS)
- Ormen (SBS)
- Tower of Brahma (SBS)
- Space-Hunt (SBS), 2K
- Kampvogn, Lambda 8300 2K
- S.O.S, Power 3000 2K
Please know, that the TZX is primarily a format for the ZX Spectrum, and few emulators for ZX81 support it.
Emulators for the ZX81 / Lambda 8300 use the P format.
On top of that, if you want to load into a real Lambda 8300 with a TZXduino, the file has to be in P format as well.
ZX81, Lambda 8300, Commodore 64, Mac G4 Cube
Probably excessive accuracy is even uncomfortable (I'm thinking at the leading noise in a tape), but it is still possible to extract a P file from a TZX. Creating a TZX from P files is obviously possible but with limited results.
Are you using maketzx?
It also has the option to save as P file, I just forgot - but will try to remember next time.
Creating a P from TZX should be easy in most cases, but I don’t know of any tools that can do that.
Playing back a tzx into a zx81/Lambda shouldn’t by theory be an issue, if the player is compliant to the tzx specs - they load fine on a real machine using my TZXDuino device
